OUR ACHEIVEMENTS THIS YEAR:
EAL Gold Quality Award
We are proud to announce that Norwood Green Infant & Nursery school has received an EAL GOLD Quality Mark for our effort and achievement towards meeting the needs of children learning English as an additional language.
One World Marathon
The One World Marathon is an organisation that has been set up to support the devastating effects of violent extremism across the world. This event is mainly in relation to the New York bombing at the time of their marathon.
Not only is this organisation aiming to promote healthy lifestyles it also promotes resilience in individuals and their communities. Many schools across the world participated in this event to show their support. By supporting this we aim to inspire people to work together as a global community. At Norwood Green Infant & Nursery school, all Reception, Year 1 & 2 children participated in this global 'One World Marathon'
This meant that the Norwood Green Infant School team all ran 2 laps of our field which equates to 500 metres. A total of 307 children in our school took part from many different countries which makes it the first virtual global marathon of its kind.
A group of 8 children from year 2 also took part in a video conference with other children from an International school in Boston, New York to discuss and share their first ever virtual online experience.
With 307 children each completing 500m a grand total of 95.3 miles has been completed in our school team.

NATIONAL READING FOR PLEASURE AWARD
“A brilliant school. The bright, hard- working atmosphere is there from the moment you enter the building- corridors and classrooms covered with lively projects and artwork… nurturing a love of books at school and at home. Weather permitting, the children and teachers go on a daily mile run- and you can see the benefits. Every child was eager to listen, question and learn and every teacher engaged and enthusiastic. Special thanks to Miss Riddell for her organisational skills and her energy and support.”
CRANFORD SPORTS COMPETITION
On Wednesday 23rd January 2019, nine Year 2 children took part in the Hounslow inter-school sports day at Cranford Community College. They competed in 6 different races: rugby, relay baton, obstacle course, scoop and ball, hurdles and a hoop race. Team Norwood Green came first in their group and made it to the semi- finals. They then raced again and came in the top 4 teams that made it into the grand final!
The children raced one last time in the final and we are very proud to say that they came in 4th place out of 41 schools. Well done to all the children who took part in the sports day, they put in 100% effort. We would also like to thank Coach Pete Lammas for training the children before the event and Sports Impact for organising the event. It was a great day and a huge success for Norwood Green.
